Its just going to get worse than it already is

 

I saw a flight that had 14 total battles flying duel premiums

 

Go figure i got stuck with them on my side

 

and also go figure there is a constant flight of il-10ms that preys on newcomers on a daily basis...

 

Makes the JL purchase an easy pass

 

Anyone, in any plane, can prey on noobs in Tier VIII premiums....no IL-10M required.

I won mine.  Fun to fly, and prints silver faster than the Feds quantitative easing.  I enjoyed being one of the lucky few to own one. I recommend this plane. hiho

I dare say, even a monkey that remotely knows how to control planes can use this to a decent results...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I look at my collection of 5 Chinese premiums with no tech tree, making them all planes that must stand alone on merit for me to be willing to fly

 

I see P51K in the hanger, why would I buy this other than to chase nicer tier 8 stats?

I traded almost 1000 unused first aid kits for the Republic XP-72 yesterday. Don't get too confident with this Chinese plane :rolleyes:

$47 CAD, way over my budget :(

Well, to folks that aren't in your shoes I'll point out that the JL is selling for less than the P-51K package cost.

 

For you, if you have 36 bucks laying around not collecting interest, I'd say buy her because she's actually a great plane on her own merits.  Fun and dynamic with reliable firepower.  The JL-1 finally gives you a fighter than can make use of all the skill points you have ground up on the first Chinese pilot you were given.  Mine only has 7 points on him, but those abilities turn the JL-1 into an absolute demon.

 

True; there's no tech tree to pursue for China.  Flying one of these planes is all about three things:

 

1.  Having fun.

2.  Printing Credits faster than the Federal Reserve

3.  Grinding skills into your Chinese ubermensch pilot.

4.  (Making lots of XP to convert to free xp to use on accelerating yet more skill points on OTHER pilots.)

That's actually the same cost as the P-51K package.   Though to be fair that package also included the 2PA.

 

I'm not sure I will buy it.  I have an aversion to OP stuff.   I picked up the I-260 last week and only just bought a Me 262 for the first time last week.  :-p

I know, right?  At least it's not selling for the same price as a J8M!

 

Also; I had skin producer extraordinaire Hawkeyededic make a skin for the Shenyang to make her look like the F-5 "MiG" stand ins from the movie "Top Gun".

 

 

Sure is a beauty!  Now that she's available for all I'll bet that Hawkeye puts up a thread in the skins section so this mod can be used by all.

 

I talked to Magus and after a few changes I will be putting a version of this skin up over the next couple of days. I have another project in the works that is top priority as I want o finish it before the Japanese Threat event ends. (HELLOOOOOOOO NURSE!!!!!!)

 

I will put up both a version similar to Magus' screenshot, with Soviet markings, and a version that uses the default Chinese markings.

I'm absolutely amazed by the people saying they're not going to buy this plane simply because anybody can buy it, or because too many people have it, etc. This plane is an absolute beast - if you can afford it, you should grab it. It literally beats up any other tier 8 except the J8M, and in many cases will take out the J8M. The only way the J8M is better is if it is flown by a very good pilot. Even then, if the JL pilot knows how to avoid an engagement with the J8M he/she can easily win on supremacy because the JL will turn the J8 all day every day.

 

Buy this plane if you can.

 

 

Cheers!

On sale for 7 days, and never again...

 

WG's principle on premium vehicles: If they're too OP, they would rather stop selling them than nerf...

 

...but you know? WG managed to successfully nerf premiums in WoWP...by changing the core game mechanics (namely, how weapons work)...C-6 is now but a shadow of its former self, for example.

 

Probably not never but it will only show up in the shop for short periods as they have done in WoWS with some of the premium ships.

I bought it. Here's what happened in my first flight in the JL.

 

 

Thanks, Magus, you were right!

gg Porkins!  I see you tagged me you blankity blank.  If only the "live long and prosper" flyer had helped the 100 + 70 flyer it would've gone the other way.....   Ah well....I guess I coulda done better. 

 

As for the JL, I am going to take a pass.  I have the 302 which, while one tier down, is the same type of monster.

...that 302 is also Russian to boot...as it's going to be a REALLY long time until a Chinese tree will be put together...if it'd happen at all...

RIP P-51H Mustang [2016/08/03-2016/10/08] , I-260[2016/01/03-2016/10/08] on My hangar.
 

I think almost  everyone on forum will buy this beast...
and I don't have any skills for killin JL-1A-37 with P-51H or I-260.

Well.. I think I need that plane ASAP.

so what you're saying is the only thing you can do in the current state of the game is exploit heavy fighters? I suggest learning how to play.
